I was trying to move a partition with partition magic 3.0.
At nearly end of move-procees the move-bar did not move any
more, while the HDD-lamp was still on. I was waiting for
minutes, but nothing happend. I decided to turn the computer down. I think, this was my real fault... Now, I have no chance to get my data back. The drive-letter is not available any more in DOS/WIN95, but the partition is still existing. I can not create new drive letter with fdisk or partition magic, without delete the existing partition. What can I do, to get my data back??? Is the only way to go to
Ontrack or something like that?
Please HELP ME!!!

If the "new" location and the "old" location of the partition
overlap, you probably are in *DEEP* trouble.
Otherwise, a commercial package like "Norton Utilities"
may be able to "reinstate" the information about the "deleted" partition.

Please increase this question to at least '50' points.  Thanks.
